Welcome to Aughton Town Green Primary School Only My Best Is Good Enough For Me

Year 2

Welcome to our Year 2 online teaching.

As we are  unable to set school readng books, we hope you will continue to read daily with your child as this is the single most important thng you could do.

All the actvities set are aimed at a child of average ability. Feel free to tweak them to suit your child's individual needs. The activities relate to the daily zoom teaching sessions so, ideally, the children should do the activity after the lesson.

We undestand that many parents will be working so please don't worry if you can't complete all the work.

Daily zoom sessions:

9.15 am - English

!0.45am - Maths

1.15pm - Topic

Week commencing 25th January 2021
This week we have added a few maths number challenges aimed at a handful of children who are completing the maths activities with some degree of ease. I must stress, that these challenges are optional and we are not expecting the children to complete any, or all, of them! However, if you wish to supplement the daily tasks with them, feel free!! There are some quite tricky ones that are aimed at lower junior children, so please don't worry if your child cannot complete them independently. I would ask, however, that you only post them on Dojo for us to mark if your child has completed the majority of the task unaided - it will help us to ascertain abilities. 

 

Week commencing Monday 25th January 2021

Mon

English – traditional tales

Make up some riddles about characters  in traditional tales

Eg I’m very ugly. I like to hide under bridges and my favourite food is goat pie! (Answer = the troll)

If you have any traditional tales story books, have a read of them!

Maths

Clearly draw or write all of the different ways you can make 50p and £1 using the coins we have available in our currency. Think about which coins you could use. How many different combinations can you make?

Eg: 20p+20p+10p= 50p        20p+20p+5p+2p+2p+1p=50p

      10p+10p+10p+10p+10p=50p

If your child finds this particularly easy, try a harder amount!

RE

Look at the Arabic word for Allah on the worksheet. Can you copy it accurately? How attractive can you make your image look? 

Tues

English

Complete the reading comprehension, The Three Little Pigs. There are 3 different versions that increase in difficulty. Most children should be aiming to complete the middle version but we will leave it up to you to decide – some of you may want to go easier or harder depending on the ability of your child. Please try to listen to your child read the story but then see if they can answer the questions independently.

Maths

Complete the Piggy Bank worksheet. How much money is in each Piggy Bank? Use real coins to help you count. Perhaps you could also draw a Piggy Bank of your own and tell me how much is in it.

Art

Create your own spiral sculpture based on the work of Andy Goldsworthy.

Wed

Make your own simple puppets for the Three Little Pigs story. You can either print off the ones provided or have fun drawing your own. Then retell the story using your puppets. You may want to create a background with the houses drawn on or even an actual puppet theatre made from an old box!

Maths

Create your own little shop at home. Remember you are the shopkeeper, decide what you are going to sell and how much each item will cost. If you are confident with money you can make the prices a little higher.

 Can you buy two items and add up how much it will cost? Or even three items? Count out the coins carefully to pay for the items. Print off the worksheet of coins to cut out and use in your shop. Or maybe you have real/plastic coins at home that you could use. Have fun!
